Another One Bites the Dust: Tyler Moore's Bizarre Scooter Injury

You may have heard: The Florida Gators have had to deal with an obscene amount of season-ending injuries to critical players this season.

Now, theres an eighth player and sixth starter to add to the list.

Offensive tackle Tyler Moore, who moved out left in last weeks 23-20 loss to Georgia, broke his right arm on Tuesday night in a scooter injury.

According to the Tampa Bay Times John C. Cotey, the 6-5, 320-pound offensive lineman lost control of his scooter on a wet sidewalk. He fell and broke his arm.

Moore had to have routine surgery with some pins in his arm, Cotey said.

He has two years of eligibility left as a Gator.

Will Muschamp confirmed the injury on Wednesday, saying the compound fracture of Moores elbow would knock him out for the season. A timetable wont be confirmed until after surgery, Muschamp said.

Max Garcia will slide into Moores place with Kyle Koel and Ian Silberman taking over at left guard, according to Gatorzone.coms Scott Carter.
